RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A 20-year-old man suspected of killing four people in central Virginia was arrested at an airport Saturday, where he apparently tried to catch a flight to California, authorities said.

The man, Richard Alden Samuel McCorsky III, was arrested by Richmond International Airport police officers who found him asleep in the baggage claim area, said airport spokesman Troy Bell. A police official confirmed the arrest but did not give other details.

Police in Farmville, where investigators found four bodies Friday afternoon in a home near the Longwood University campus, had sent flyers to authorities elsewhere to help identify McCorsky.

State police were assisting in the investigation in Farmville, about 50 miles west of Richmond.

McCorsky showed identification when officers approached him, did not resist and did not have any weapons with him, Bell said. He was being held at the airport until Farmville police came for him, and has been charged with murder, robbery and grand larceny.

The identities of the victims and the cause of death were not immediately available.
